Metabolism of lipid in the human fatty streak lesion.


The composition and synthesis of lipid have been examined in normal intima and adjacent fatty streak lesions of human arterial segments which were incubated with [2-(14)C]acetate. The incorporation of acetate into lipid was greater in fatty streaks than in normal intima. There was increased acetate incorporation into all major lipid groups in the fatty… (More)
